Abstract (en)

When an animation mode is designated, still picture data that has been photographed or discretely read from a record medium is compressed in a subtractive color process and a data compressing process corresponding to the LZW method. The compressed data is converted into an animation GIF file of which still picture data is combined in the time sequence and it is correlatively displayed on the time base. When an animation mode completion command is input or the size of the GIF file becomes a recordable size of the external storage medium 8, the GIF file data is written to the external storage medium 8. In addition, after a photographed still picture is recorded to the external storage medium 8, an animation can be created. In addition, an animation GIF file can be created using a plurality of still pictures recorded in the external storage medium 8. In addition, an animation GIF file that has been created can be edited. <IMAGE>
